Doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals often work in challenging environments. From emergency rooms to operating theatres and clinics to wards, medical settings can be high pressured, busy, and very, very hot. As a result, medical workers need breathable scrubs that will keep them cool and comfortable in all situations.

Lightweight, breathable scrubs help to wick moisture away from the body, prevent odours and keep the wearer at a comfortable temperature. Moisture wicking scrubs are ideal for people who work in hot, busy environments and for those who operate in countries with tropical temperatures.

To help you find the best breathable scrubs for your workplace, we’ve selected the most efficient moisture wicking and hot weather scrubs from our collection.


Cherokee iflex CK605 Scrub Top

Cherokee Scrubs Top 2XL Cherokee iflex CK605 Scrubs Top Women's V-Neck Knit Panel Black

Polyester is one of the most efficient moisture wicking textiles around. Unlike materials such as cotton which absorb liquid, polyester pulls sweat and water away from the body allowing it to evaporate quickly and easily. This helps to keep you feeling dry and can make working in hot, hectic conditions a lot more bearable.

With an impressive 94% polyester, the iflex CK605 women’s scrub top from Cherokee is perfect for medical professionals who want to be comfortable while they’re at work. These cooling scrubs also contain 6% spandex, adding a bit of flexibility and durability to the garment. The scrubs have knitted back and side panels, making them extra comfortable and suitable for all types of medical settings.
